Abstract

This article suggests a reading of a posthumous poem by Saint-Denys Garneau, in three stages : 1) a philological approach of the final text, 2) a genetic examination of the pre-texts, 3) a study of how the poem was received by its first reader, Saint-Denys Garneau himself, in his Journal. Three methods, derived from three theories of the text, are summoned in this way. The conclusion focuses on the difference between the autobiography of the Journal and what might be called the "impersonalisation" of the poems.
